CrawfishBoil2

How was your 4th of July weekend?

We had some friends and family over this weekend, and Patrick and I attempted our first ever crawfish boil at home! It’s something that I have been wanting to try for a while, but never really dared to do – it just seemed so daunting.

We ordered 33lbs (Yes, 33. It was nuts) of live crawfish, and had to sort them, clean them, and lastly, cook them. Sorting live crawfish is exactly as much fun as it sounds – it’s not. They are feisty, pinchy, and they don’t smell great, either. Cooking them was also a feat in itself – because we don’t have a gigantic pot to hold 33lbs of crawfish (plus corn, plus sausages), we had to cook them in 2 separate pots, in 2 separate batches.

But you know what is even more incredible? We finished it all. There were only 4 couples and 2 toddlers, and we finished 33lbs of crawfish, Mac & Cheese, fruit and an amazing croissant and butter pudding that my friend Melissa made. By the end of the night, it was all gone.

Olive was totally into eating crawfish too, which doesn’t really surprise me (the girl likes to eat mussels. What? I know.) But the thing she probably enjoyed the most was the company… she’s truly a full blown toddler now who laughs at jokes, plays with (and not just alongside) her friends, and is curious about everyone.

I hope you all had a great long weekend! Back to the grind!
